Hello,
I am not sure I understand your question, but yes, higher levels of prolactin and progesterone can lead to delayed pregnancy as well as infertility.... kindly re-frame your question ...

progesterone rises in the second half of menstrual cycle.
but reference ranges are defined for each part of the cycle
prolactin does not rise premenstrually
yes disturbance of these hormones can cause imfertility
